The Inside Track from Betting Insiders
We had another positive last week where pundit Carl Nicholson's 3 Star Nap Riverside Theatre duly obliged.
This weekend he had a lively priced horse to tickle our fancies. Unfortunately it has since been pulled out of its intended engagement!
As a result we're going to have a play with an in form trainer's runners.
Donald McCain has been firing in the winners all season. During the current month he has amassed 8 victories from 43 recording a decent level stake profit at SP.
However 6 of those 8 were over the smaller obstacles. He has an uncanny knack of getting the best out of these types.
At the moment he has a couple entered at Newcastle on Saturday and also at Towcester on Sunday.
It could well pay to give all of them that take up their entries a very close inspection.
The horses to note are:-
Sat – Newc 13:50 – Mountain Hiker
Sat – Newc 16:00 – Agent Archie
Sun – Towc 14:20 – It's Oscar
Sun – Towc 14:50 – Dj Milan
The first of those named must be trying his new connections patience.
He clearly has ability after being rated 95 on the flat before being sold out of Jeremy Noseda's yard last November. To date he hasn't shown a lot on three runs over hurdles.
Just prior to his last run McCain was quoted as saying “He is clearly a bit quirky but there is an engine there if he can get it all together.”
Tomorrow may not turn out to be the day but it will hopefully be a case of sooner rather than later.
